Titus69Oh yeah especially here in NH where people are OD'ing on it very often, meanwhile cops are still making a huge deal about getting a 1 pumce bust of pot. But it's ok our governor thinks decriminalization isn't safe for the youth. If only Bernie had a bigger chance....
and how many of those ods came from people being unsure of the purity? legal heroin wouldn't secretly have a big dose of fentanyl in it.
i would even go as far as to say that if you are able to use it in a responsible way, heroin is safer than alcohol.
if someone wants to get high, they're going to find a way to do it. laws don't do shit to dissuade people from taking drugs.
also, drug education is very important. not anti drug propaganda like dare however. in no way should we encourage people to take drugs, but they should know the truth about them. programs like dare don't do anything to educate people about harm reduction.
there is no perfect solution for how society should deal with drugs, but it is quite clear that prohibition is not working.
